Since time immemorial, the human race has lived in a very close relationship with wild animals. Something that has been preserved to this day. Although many of us can’t even imagine what it would be like to live away from the hectic city life we’re used to. There are still plenty of people who peacefully live their lives off the grid, deep in the wilderness.
One such example is Seppo Laamanen, a 65-year-old man who lives alone in his cozy home in Finland woods. Despite being alone, Seppo never feels lonely because he always finds great friends with the animals that live on his doorstep.
But above all, there is one otter with whom he shares the greatest bond. Now, not a day goes by that Seppo is not visited by his four-legged friend. A visit the old man can’t wait for, every morning!
It all started a few winters ago. Back that day, Seppo was surprised to see a small animal on his porch, begging for food. It was freezing outside, and with the lake almost completely frozen, it was nearly impossible for the little otter to find something to hunt.
Kind Seppo gave some fish to his unusual guest, and the otter happily took it. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. One became famous online after someone decided to spread the word about these two companions.
Now, the friendly otter feels like he’s in Seppo’s house, and the older man feels happier there. Winter is approaching, Seppo makes sure he has some extra food in his pantry, just in case his otter friend also decides to bring over some of his furry friends.
